Oooh, dear. That's not right

Holiday Memetime: Subliminal Signals

The barman looked at it and then looked at Ford. He suddenly shivered: he experienced a momentary sensation that he didn't understand because no one on Earth had ever experienced it before. In moments of great stress, every life form that exists gives out a tiny subliminal signal. This signal simply communicates an exact and almost pathetic sense of how far that being is from the place of his birth. On Earth it is never possible to be further than sixteen thousand miles from your birthplace, which really isn't very far, so such signals are too minute to be noticed. Ford Prefect was at this moment under great stress, and he was born 600 light years away in the near vicinity of Betelgeuse.

I now live (according to Google Earth): 2,879 miles from my birthplace.

This would be the furthest I have ever lived from my birthplace. Anyone else?

Edit: jnanacandra== 2787 mi.

Why no... we're not originally from the Pacific North West. But then again....
aiden_freeman == 32 mi. Guess it's time to move to New Zealand ;)

157.24 miles, according to Mapquest.

Though 2/3 of the way through that you actually need to switch to kilometres...

Currently: 220 miles
Furthest: 1,295 miles

where that 1295 was. :)

Re: And I bet I know...

Not L.A. :)

Currently: 1030 mi.
Furthest: 3960 mi.

Both as the crow flies...

Current and furthest, per Google Earth: 2,872

That's quite the trip....

What's the origin... And Hi... I have no idea who you are but was amused at the surprisingly strange list of common 'friends'

Re: That's quite the trip....

Hi :) The origin is Virginia and I like surprisingly strange friends.

I found your entry while reading the seattlepoly friendslist entries. I've been a part of the global poly community for about 6 years and a part of the local community for 1.

I enjoy reading the community friendslist when my friendslist gets quiet. I find it surprising how many people I haven't met yet who are members of the seattlepoly community.

Nice to meet ya!

I'm going to guess... Texas. (How far off was I :?)

6.5 miles by Google Maps. Maybe 6 as the crow flies.

The furthest I've lived would be 1700 miles by interstate. I'm not going to try to eyeball the actual distance on that one. :)

275 miles currently.

You could probably add another 8 to 10 for the furthest distance.

downstream a little over 100 miles.

Currently 74.3 miles (according to google maps) however, from January 17th... approximately 4551.4 statue miles (that's according to lat & long, so probably as the crow flies)

that sounds like a bit of a move

Where are you headed?

BTW: Okay... Eccleston was a thug in your opinion.
Have you seen any of the Tennant and what do you think of him :?)

Google Earth won't work for we heathens still on '98.

Am curious which is farther away from Salt Lake City: Adak, Alaska or Canadensis, Pennsylvania.

it's about 15 miles from the hospital to home.
